Call in to speak with the host
There is a dead sound spot at the beginning - lost the internet! Hang in there, Karl will be right back with Keni Thomas' "Send Me".
GallantFew, Inc is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to reducing Veteran unemployment, homelessness and suicide.
Today's scheduled guest is Rob Kulessa, a veteran with service in the venerable 3/187 "Rakkasans", 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). Rob has always held veterans issues close to his heart. He gained entry into the 2013 Ironman Lake Placid race and decided to a "Your Journey, Your Cause" to support GallantFew.
For those unaware, the Ironman is a 2.4 mile swim followed by a 112 mile bike and ended with with a 26.2 mile marathon run for a total of 140.6 miles. This must be completed in under 17 hours for the athlete to earn the title "Ironman".
Rob probably doesn't want me adding this, but I am anyway. Rob lost his entire home in Hurricane Sandy yet still has put his effort into supporting other veterans - even over his own needs.
Rob has some really awesome plans to include some Rangers and awesome physical conditioning training into his final preparations for the Ironman - learn about this, see if you can also get involved.
Rob's company is the RWK Agency, specializing in employee benefits.
It's good to talk.
